Pre-match statements

Xavi - Barcelona Coach

"I visualize a victory, why would I think otherwise? I'm preparing for that, for them to be well and to see that it's a chance to get us into the round of 16. I'm positive and I see it as an opportunity. I visualize myself winning, scoring goals? Nobody is going to take that illusion away from me. I would like a great game from the team, of course, but we are not in a position to give anything away. Anything that means three points... But the most important thing is how. The objective is to win, but we understand that it is the result of the game. Anything that means winning will be welcome, but the way things are done, too".

Jorge Jesus - Benfica Coach

"Barcelona changed coaches and I expect a different team in terms of system. Xavi trained at home. They usually play with a 4-3-3 and now the wind may be more favorable in the atmosphere due to the change of coach. Barça will have more confidence. But, with Xavi or Koeman, Barça will always be a great team and with players who can unbalance at any time. The atmosphere will be good for Barça, but we also like to play in a stadium like the Camp Nou.
